There's a lot in the papers about Alastair Campbell's diaries today. Apparently the BBC are going to pay a lot of money - our money - for the broadcast serialisation rights. They are obviously deeply forgiving people.
But it does occur to me that someone should start penning the Not the Alastair Campbell Diaries, which would include all the bits he is going to leave out. Peter Oborne has written a biography of Campbell so I reckon he's the man to come to the aid of his country now. For all I know, he is already doing it as he has taken a month off from his Mail column, ostensibly to write a book on something else.
Correction: [blush] I mistakenly wrote that Oborne had penned the Not the Alan Clark Diaries in the original version of this piece. Sarkis Zeronian correctly points out they were in fact written by Peter Bradshaw. [/blush]
